“A lot of fans have been requesting that in-your-face song, a sense of feeling empowered,” Renae tells Billboard.com. “And ‘Good Woman’ is that: a relatable song celebrating the good woman. I’m also really proud of the third verse, which I wrote.”
La’Porsha Renae quickly became an American sweetheart after appearing on the 15th and final season of American Idol. Captivating the audience with heart-wrenching performances of records such as “No More Drama” (Mary J. Blige), “Ready for Love” (India Arie) and “Diamonds” (Rihanna), La’Porsha quickly grabbed the attention of not only the American Idol judges, but also the millions of viewers at home. Despite becoming the seasons runner-up, music business onlookers quickly recognized La’Porsha’s God-given star quality and she was immediately offered a recording contract with 19 Recordings/Motown Records.
